Fall Wall Decor, “Honey-Bumble Bee Dance”
These days have just passed us by…but here is a trace of what goes on as summer winds down. What you see is BOTH a bumble and honey bee on the same plant dancing around collecting what they collect. Check out Honey-Bumble Bee Dance in my Instagram Collection if you’d like a bright, lively, upbeat image added to your print collection, such a nice image…so suitable for fall.
Below, you see the same image adapted to a small business office. Note the wall color changes, but the impact is similarly strong. Since these originals are taken on an iPhone they cannot be blown up too large without risking a breakdown in resolution, so I have tried to carefully the control these variations for best results. Remember, don’t hang these in bright sunlight– diminished light will preserve the life of your print. As for me, I have a soft spot for both the Bumble and the Honey Bee, so this particular image holds a special place in my heart.
Question for you: Have you ever purchased a graphic print? Maybe right now, this fall, instead of just another commercial gadget, you might consider a different kind of gift, an art print. Remember, too, the gift-giving season is just ahead. Slowdowns are expected this year. Product availability is difficult. Off-shore container ships are backed up for weeks. So perhaps it is a good time to order your art prints now.
Prints are all produced using high-quality materials– pigments, papers and framing materials. I invite you to visit often, as the year moves toward a new beginning in 2022. Buy a print every now and again, one that moves you. In our post-pandemic period, what better way to celebrate than…with a fall art print…perhaps even a gift to a friend or relative.
Two unusual and decidedly helpful features on my art site: The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above. Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff, an under-appreciated feature.
“Business Advice” for day: My bee-hives are busy this October morning. June 21, the longest day of the year, the optimal time of year for honey-bees around here has long passed. Honey-stocks necessary for the winter are all in, now. Last minute curing has to occur to finish up before frosts arrive. Honey gathered up for winter will allow honey bees to generate heat sufficient to survive until April 1– a very long time if you are a winter honey-bee! Aren’t there some crucial lessons here for human kind? Are we putting up stocks of our own sufficient to sustain us through the long winter into spring? Any smart business person must think in these terms to some critical extent. Let’s take a cue from our honey-bee friends. Time now is not to be wasted, but put to the best precious use we can muster.
In early October my floral honey-bee garden is still blossoming, do you believe it? Bees are all over the newest blossoms, though many have gone by. I intend to follow the bees, and to pay attention today to the flowers that beckon me with their fresh but late blossoms.
